NORTH LITTLE ROCK Arkansas Attorney General and Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Dustin McDaniel is facing the media for the first time since admitting to an extramarital relationship.
McDaniel on Tuesday planned to hold a news conference at a North Little Rock hotel, three weeks after acknowledging an inappropriate relationship with Hot Springs attorney Andrea L. Davis.
McDaniel has been married since 2009 and said he met Davis during his 2010 re-election campaign.
McDaniel has repeatedly refused interview requests and hasn’t made any public appearances since admitting to the relationship in a Dec. 18 statement released by his campaign.
McDaniel is the only announced Democratic candidate for governor. He has said he has no plans to drop his 2014 bid.
